Welcome to another round of the Spotify Playlist Project here. This time, I’ll be focusing on The 100, season 2. It is a season of brutal conflict between many different societies of humans. There is sacrifice, loss, love. I hope you enjoy my choices. Warning: Some spoilers ahead.
The 100 (What’s Left of Them) Is Back!
Opening Tracks: “Numb/Encore” by Linkin Park and Jay Z comes to mind. “Look what you made me do,” reminds me of Finn. The numbness definitely is also present in Clarke as well as she unveils the reality of Mount Weather. Oh, yes, I also included “Animal I Have Become” by Three Day Grace and”Heads Will Roll” by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, because someone goes into a violent outburst.
Octavia and Indra: “In For the Kill” (Skrillex Remix) by La Roux, and “Raise Your Weapon,” by deadmau5. Accurate choice is accurate! Octavia has to make some serious choices in this season, and she takes a route that is unconventional. She has a lot of fight scenes that I absolutely loved. *Hint: Dina really likes Octavia, okay?
Mount Weather (Wither)
General Theme: “Illuminated” by Hurts. A double entendre is at play here. On the one hand, the population of Mount Weather see themselves as rather illuminated. The other interpretation is the awakening the 47 experience through Clarke’s disappearance.
Clarke and Lexa:
“Human” by Rag’n Bone Man is kind of my theme song for Clarke (and sometimes Bellamy, too). I included this song in season 1’s playlist, and it continues to be deeply connected to Clarke’s character this time around as well. There is a lot of tension surrounding her as a leader.
“What If” by Safety Suit marks the conflict between these two awesome ladies. The things they want are very different. Particularly that surprise towards the end of the season.
I used a kind of different font just to signify how much I love this guy. He’s separate from many people. Admittedly, I also feel bad for him, because his luck is awful.
Oh, “Hunger” by Ross Copperman also works on many levels. First, it’s about his relationship with the Mount Weather people. Then, to me, he will always have a connection with Octavia. And, obviously, there’s the longing to belong while maintaining peace between the Grounders and the Sky People.
“Battle Scars” by Lupe Fiasco and Guy Sebastian is becoming the anthem of this group of peeps. In particular, Clarke, Jasper, and Monty. I have a feeling they’ll continue to be related to that song in later seasons.
Cruel joke: “How to Save a Life” by the Fray is very much about Jasper and his relationship with Dante Wallace. Oh yeah, I went there: to the relationship between the 47 and Mountain Men.
Being blunt (another joke): “Bleeding Out” by Imagine Dragons.
I’m sorry. (Not, I am really not).
“Jealous” by Labrinth and “I Need My Girl” by The National are the beginnings of what I felt for Finn along the way to the big thing that happens. “Stay” by Rhianna coupled with “Strange Birds” by Birdy are related to said thing.
I am sadly sometimes falling into a ship no one seems to have: Murphy AND BELLAMY!! (I don’t know. Maybe I shouldn’t have said that). The writers will drag out the Bellarke path, I can just tell.
So, anyway, “idfc” by Blackbear is totally him. And, a little “Die Trying” by Michl with him and Jaha.
Bellamy (and Clarke?):
“I’ll Find You” By Lecrae and Tori Kelly and “Ends of the Earth” by Lord Huron are perfect fits for Bellamy and Clarke’s relationship in this season (and toward the 47 for sure).
Finally, for the whole season: “Strange Birds” by Birdy.
